Hi, I'm Veronica and I want to be your friend before I become your wedding and hopefully your "always" photographer.

I believe in real moments and chasing the sunlight together as I photograph you and your favorite people. Mostly because we can't stop chatting about life.
 I believe in the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 
I began my photography journey photographing families 10 years ago, and then moved to weddings in 2012.  Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of all the people in the images and the world around them. Your story is handwritten by the Creator himself and it is such an honor that I get to photograph beautiful glimpses of it. 
Even with it's ups and downs, your life, your story, are beautiful and I can't wait to create images to show that! My love for photography has brought me everywhere from the beaches of Hawaii to the downtown streets of Chicago. Where do you wanna go with me?

I was born and raised in the north east part of Romania and moved to Arizona when I was 12, but just because I lived in the states for more than half my life doesn't mean I've forgotten my heritage and Romanian culture. I love Romanian food, Romanian music and my husband and I speak the language fluently and are trying to teach it to our girls (when they feel like learning it). 

My favorite tradition? Spending the major holidays surrounded by family. Every year, my mom, aunt, and uncle take turns hosting Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving and while I wasn't a big fan of them as a teenager, I find those times with family to be the most important these past few years.

Love, family and tradition bring warmth to our home. 


“When we got the pictures back it was like we were reliving our wedding day all over again. I still get butterflies looking at them.”

Nothing cools me up faster on a warm afternoon than a full glass of green iced tea. Throw in a a couple princesses playing in the background and you have the ingredients for a perfect end to a great day.

I believe in moments over presents. I would rather take a trip somewhere amazing over receiving jewelry. In the last 8 years Alex and I have traveled to California, NYC, Georgia, Illinois, Texas, Oregon and many other states, but my most favorite adventure has been living in Hawaii.

New isn't always better. Alex always tells me I hoard too many things, but we all know that collecting is totally different than hoarding. Favorite thing to do as self care, walk through antique and second hand stores. 




There it is. There's no less in your face way of saying that. But it's so true. I love Jesus, which means I love people. I strive to live my life to serve you and others the way He called me to. I'm free because of Him. I'll spend my life sharing His love and light with others.

I have been featured in the following publications

the black tie bride
the knot 
the perfect palette 


My couples' weddings have been featured in national publications, and I'm so humbled and grateful to have been a part of that. Many thanks to the teams of vendors who've helped make those days absolutely magical. Here's some of the publications.

If this is your first time here you need to know that Veronica Ilioi Photography was originally Unfading Beauty Photography. The reason for the change is that I know I can be more than just a photographer under the new website. I want to teach, mentor, and even disciple. While this is a photography website, I hope it to be way more than that. I want to talk about parenthood, our relationships with Jesus and others. I want to teach on editing and how to be a good mom and boss. I want to serve you. And what better way, than to just be me, from the get go.
